Dickstein Shapiro NYC

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 20, 2011 3:23 pm

Does anyone have any experience with this firm? If so. Good or bad?

Has anyone received any 2L summer offers through OCI or PLIP? Rejections?

Thank you!

I was fortunate enough to have a callback. I really like the firm, but haven't heard a peep yet.

Don't be too worried about the silence. Dickstein was extending offers in mid-October last year. Good luck!

Congratulations. Was it for an IP position or general? Are you going to accept?

General. I'm not sure if I'm going to accept it yet. It's down to Dickstein and one other firm and they're pretty much neck and neck. Both offers are off the table next Thursday, so I'm going to try to make a decision by Monday.
